Physical Description:

. Exit Enter uses simple graphics to go beyond iconography. He aims to create dynamics between his work and people who see them in the streets ,raising questions, emotions,thoughts; creating a movement that reflects the process of artistic creation. The characters are stylized little figures with a narrative and they delicately perform various actions: the princess, the donkey, the musician, etc. they all form part of a bigger narrative scene. His works have a strong traditional identity, related to great urban figures such as Banksy or Keith Haring. In the case of the latter, there are several references in the way of playing with the architectural and aesthetic possibilities offered by the surrounding environment. These characters are poetic and follow a narrative rhythm characterized by a romantic and nostalgic dimension. Exit Enter seems to be one of the last romantics, able to tell us a short story with very little available and a lot of creativity.

Iconography:

This is the first big mural from the artist ExitEnter. Created in 2017 the music is a legal piece. The first sketch of the artwork was depicted the Little prince ( is a children’s book from Antoine de Saint- Exupery). This first senario turned down by the local government which thought that the little prince represent ( the non-muslim community but a white man who does not respect the locals people culture). Thus Exit Enter and the art director of the SAMA changed the concept of the artwork and replaced it with another new fairytale (the musician Bremen from the Grimm Brothers). As many street Artist do not like to have a censorship at their works thus and Exit Enter took the little Prince and he put it down of the Glory’s artwork.
